Something A Bit Off-Kilter

Recommended Posts


First attempt on a Standard Deck with a surprise 5/5 thus far granted at least one of those was a throw as far as I'm aware. Probably never gonna tap meta but I had too much fun not to share. Will probably look to grab one more copy of "Blow-Away Bomb" bait, Roxie, and one Gar&Gira as time ticks on. Idea is to get hard advantage through playing and toolboxing two Supporters a turn through Impersonation, using early BABs/Mischievous Hands to prime up the board to optimize the Gar&Gira finisher with the others+items to help rubber-band the game as necessary. Mimikyu is the star here and that's entirely by design, little guy deserves the attention and hugs.


I welcome any critique and would love to hear from anyone else with neat ways to use the assorted Mimikyu printings, thank you for your time.

First off, that's a lot of supporters. Your deck plays 3 Koffing for combination with Roxie but you only have 1 Roxie in deck. To increase the consistency of getting the Roxie play off, increase your count to 3-4 (in the place of some Bug Catcher) and add in 4 Weezing CEC instead of Koffing. Run some Lure Ball to recycle Weezing and get more Blow Away Bombs going. Swap the Pokemon Center Lady for Mallow and Lana, healing the 120 and switching effectively removes all conditions on your Active Pokemon. 4 Mimikyu is a bit overboard, you can trim it back to 3. Run Karate Belt to help your Giratina and Garchomp attack sooner. Cut down to 10-11 energy if you aren't running N's Resolve. You only need 3-4 Fighting Energy especially if you have Karate Belt and 5-6 Psychic energy. Maybe keep 1 Recycle Energy around for the Mimikyu to use Impersonation, but I would personally cut it. Pokemon search is essential to a strong deck, add in 3-4 Mysterious Treasure and 3-4 Quick Ball to find your Pokemon instead of some of these supporters, you can trim back on the Tate and Liza, cut the Rosa, cut Lady, and cut Koga's Trap, Energy Search can go too. Swap the Passimian for Karate Belts. Convert your Judge to another Marnie. Only use 1 Ordinary Rod, maybe 1 Brock's Grit instead if you're really worried about needing to recycle. Throw in 1 **********igzagoon to get damage counters on when you can't afford to use Roxie or Mischievous Hands.Other than that, looks pretty good.
